Mary Stafford sang blues primarily in the club circuit, but she also cut a dozen sides for Columbia in 1921 (she was the first black woman to record for Columbia). The full title of this piece is "I'm Gonna Jazz My Way Right Straight Through Paradise". It was recorded on March 7, 1921. The label credits "Mary Stafford and Her Jazz Band", but some sources I've seen credit Charlie Johnson's Orchestra with the accompaniment.

Gid Tanner And His Skillet Lickers with Riley Puckett on vocals and guitar perform "Bully of the Town", recorded on April 17, 1926. The song dates back to at least the late 1800s. It is a challenge raised by Mississippi rivermen looking for a fight with the locals in the towns where they'd dock. Fiddler James Gideon "Gid" Tanner made his living as a farmer in Georgia. He was one of the first Southern country artists to record, making his first records in the mid 1920s.

Earl Fuller's Famous Jazz Band was one of the very first jazz bands to record. They were Victor's replacements for the Original Dixieland Jazz band, who had defected to Columbia. "Li'l Liza Jane" was recorded on September 10, 1917. From the original 78rpm disk.

Hot ragtime mandolin by Dr. Clarence Penney, "Toots - One-Step" was recorded on August 31, 1914. The piano accompaniment is by Felix Arndt, who also composed "Toots". Although banjo is the more usual instrument in ragtime recordings, the mandolin was also used, and this is a good example of the genre. From the original 78rpm disk.

Clara Smith was a part of the great migration from the south, moving from her home in South Carolina to Harlem in the early 1920s, where she became a popular blues singer. She actively recorded throughout the 1920s, including this performance of "Don't Advertise Your Man" on April 23, 1924. There is an uncredited (and very minimal) piano and ukelele accompaniment. From the original 78 rpm disk.

Peony Su was a star of Cantonese Opera in the 1920s and 1930s. Here she sings a traditional piece, "White Hibiscus at Night". Judging by the appearance of the disk, this recording dates from the early 1920s. Thanks to Nancy and Terry for the translation of the record label. From 78rpm.
